15% continuous grazed

To determine if grazing management at the Bear Creek Unit significantly impacted medusahead and yellow starthistle over the course of the study, we used linear mixed effects regression to examine trends in cover of these species between grazed
and ungrazed treatments.
We hypothesized that: composition of species and functional vegetation in excluded areas will significantly differ from that in grazed
areas; structure of vegetation as measured with biomass, maximum height of plants, percentage of cover, and percentage of litter will be greater in the excluded plots following one grazing season; and diversity will be greater in exclosures.
Overgrazing is defined as a plant being grazed
before it has a positive carbohydrate balance--such as too early in the growing season, or continuously eating it down before it gains enough reserves.
grass will cost about 1/3 that of silage and about 1/6 that of concentrate, so make the most of it.
plots were on the adjacent Babacomari and Diamond C cattle ranches.
Here, we examine this hypothesis by testing 2 predictions: (1) vegetation will be significantly shorter and sparser in grazed
meadows; and (2) estimated pocket gopher density will be significantly higher in grazed
Schmidly (2004), which is used by TPWD as their main source of small mammal data for the state, states that heavily grazed
rangeland and the eroded sites of rangeland roadways may provide optimum habitat.

This study incorporates two summer management strategies as part of a livestock production system incorporating grazed
winter wheat: summer fallow (SF) and dual-cropping with summer legumes (SL); and two livestock treatments: grazed
The strip plot treatment was grazing frequency in which low frequency plots were grazed
bimonthly (mid-May, mid-July, and mid-September) and the high frequency treatment was grazed
monthly from mid-May to mid-September.

grass in temperate animal systems; proceedings.
Study objectives were to determine stages of seed germination and document numbers of germinating seeds, protocorms, and seedlings in two grazed
versus two ungrazed plots.
Most of England's uplands are grazed
by sheep and almost one quarter are designated as SSSIs.
